	Russ Allbery uploaded new packages for opensaml2 which fixed the
	following security problems:


	    Juraj Somorovsky, Andreas Mayer, Meiko Jensen, Florian Kohlar, Marco
	    Kampmann and Joerg Schwenk discovered that OpenSAML is vulnerable to
	    an XML signature wrapping attack that could allow a remote,
	    unauthenticated attacker to craft messages that can be successfully
	    verified but contain arbitrary content.  This may allow an attacker
	    to subvert the security of software using OpenSAML and supply an
	    unauthenticated login identity and data under the guise of a trusted

	For the lenny-backports distribution, this problem has been fixed in

	We recommend that you upgrade your opensaml2 packages and then restart
	shibd and Apache if you have Shibboleth installed as well.

	If you don't use pinning (see [1]) you have to update the package
	manually via "apt-get -t lenny-backports install <packagelist>" with
	the packagelist of your installed packages affected by this update.
